Wild fans have 41 team-approved options to choose from when selecting the best location, other than Xcel Energy Center, to watch games this season. None are your home.

The team announced its official list of “Minnesota Wild Watch Bars” on Wednesday highlighting locations that are specifically set up for viewing “every minute of every Wild game” during the 2016-2017 season.

The approved watch bars will also feature special promotions for fans throughout each game. The locations will be identified by “Wild Watch Bar” signage and a custom Wild jersey.

Fans looking for a team-approved watch bar in Minneapolis have one option: The Pint on 430 1st Ave. In St. Paul there are nine approved options: Alary’s, Billy’s on Grand, Burger Moe’s, Eagle Street Grille, Rival House, Station 280, The Happy Gnome, Wild Tymes, and World of Beer.
